We began this lesson with a drawing of Stephs doll. A very nice line drawing..

I then wanted to explain to Yuval a little further the concept of 3-d. After drawing the toy train last time i noticed she was a little confused... so i asked her to draw a rectangular shaped tin that i put in front of her...

After a second drawing of the tin and going through how it was built, we discussed tones of colour...i asked Yuval to draw a scale of red dots from very dark to very light and to then take the two end colours and the middle one and colour in the tin.

We talked about warm and cool colours...

And then i gave her several pieces of coloured card and asked her to cut out different sized squares from them...and told her to mix them up and stick them down in different groupings of colour - i wanted to demonstrate how we see colours differently depending on their context. Yuval enjoyed cutting and sticking and instantly understood what i was trying to show her...

I think Yuval enjoyed the variety of exercises in this lesson.

Wishing everyone a great weekend..we are considering a trip to the beach.. and next week the introduction of a new collaboration!!!!!!!
